Alicia Galvin MEd, RD, LD, CLT has practiced as a registered dietitian in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for over 8 years with an emphasis on GI health, therapeutic diets, wellness, and autoimmunity. She has always had a fascination with the way food and nutrition influence health and currently practices as an integrative and functional dietitian who helps patients develop customized solutions that empower them to take control of their health challenges.
After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences from Texas A&M University, Alicia’s early career was spent in an inpatient setting at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas and then delivering in-home nutrition care with Bioscript Infusion. She later earned a Master of Education in Counseling degree from the University of North Texas and completed her Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner (IFNCP) certification with the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy. She is also a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) with a specialty in food sensitivities and chronic inflammatory conditions.
At the private practice she founded in 2013 as well as working with Carpathia Collaborative, a premier Functional Medicine Clinic in Dallas (www.carpathiacollaborative.com), Alicia has a keen interest in gastrointestinal (GI) disease, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. She also works with patients with autoimmune conditions, including autoimmune thyroid disease, as well as infertility, developing therapeutic diets to manage and treat these conditions.
Alicia’s wide-ranging expertise gives her a unique perspective on evaluating patients’ health — both physical and emotional — and developing the best eating plan and nutritional supplementation to help them achieve optimal wellness. In addition to identifying food triggers of inflammation, Alicia guides people in modifying their diet, creates recipes and meal plans and provides nutritional education in both individual and class settings.
Having previously served as a Nutrition Entrepreneur Mentor Coordinator for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Alicia continues to mentor her colleagues in various outlets. Alicia has also mentored multiple dietetic interns in her practice, as she feels educating the future dietitians is critical to the furthering of the profession!
